Gabrielle Union's daughter melted the hearts of her almost 1 million Instagram followers in a video that showed her dressed in a cute unicorn outfit.
In it, the little girl walked around what appears to be her living room dressed in a unicorn outfit with white, pink, purple, and rainbow design.
The video got captioned,
"Looking for the meeting of the unicorns. I'm late [because] traffic was insane."
And her followers reacted to it in the comment section. One person wrote, "Hello miss pretty unicorn," while another commented,
"Lol, my womb cannot manage this."
A third commented,
"I still can't believe this little girl is already walking. Own the world girl."
Kaavia James indeed owns the world, and when she's not attending unicorn parties, the little girl is showing off her swimming skills and fearlessness underwater.
In October, another video on her social media showed the first child of Union, swimming excellently with well-coordinated arm and leg movement.
That same month, the "Being Mary Jane" actress defended a photo of herself, her daughter, and step-child, 12-year-old Zion, on social media.
A troll questioned the soundness of Union's husband, Dwayne Wade, captioning the photo on his Instagram story, "My girls," as Zion is a boy.
The "Think Like a Man" star responding to the troll's question "What y'all think about this?" wrote,
"Looks like love to me. I truly hope everyone gets the love, support, and hugs they deserve."
Union, who had several infertility issues, and a condition called adenomyosis, guards and protects her family jealously. She suffered several miscarriages before using the services of a surrogate to welcome Kaavia James last November.
In May, on Mother's Day, the actress acknowledged her struggles, and the joy she felt after seeing her daughter.
In a photo post on Instagram showing the moment the actress and Wade met their daughter, she wrote,
"I've cried so many times today for many reasons. Mainly because I had gotten accustomed to heartbreaks and disappointments [before I had my daughter]."
"I think a lot of us live in that headspace; I set up shop there. This moment reminded me that miracles do happen."
Union counts her blessings, and with Kaavia James turning one in a month, she's more grateful than ever that she gets to experience the joys of motherhood.
